Flight Control June 10th, 2009 @ 8:48 am PDT
The absolute best iPhone app on the market right now has got to be Firemint’s FlightControl. You are an air-traffic controller tasked with routing planes (and helicopters) to the correct landing strip at one of three different airports. It sounds simple — and it is easy to learn and play — but after you’ve gotten […]
GarageBand + iTunes = Free iPhone Ringtones January 23rd, 2009 @ 1:44 pm PDT
Whoa! I had no idea that you could use GarageBand and iTunes to create custom iPhone ringtones from any song in your iTunes library. That is bitchin’!

How to Handle a Ducking iPhone December 4th, 2008 @ 3:16 pm PDT
For some reason that makes little sense, Apple decided to not include one of the words I use most frequently in the iPhone’s internal dictionary. So if I ever send you a text message saying that something is, “ducking awesome,” or that you need to, “get the duck out,” that is why. A certified Apple […]
iPhone SMS Alarm Bug August 14th, 2008 @ 8:22 am PDT
This morning I discovered what is possibly the world’s most annoying iPhone bug. For some time now I’ve been trying to determine why every now and then I seem to sleep right through my alarm. The iPhone alarm can be set to be tragically loud and uncomfortably annoying, so the fact that I have frequently […]

I played with Photoshop a bit tonight while watching the Olympics and turned some of my favorite photos into iPhone wallpapers. (It’s certainly not hard to do — just resize any image to 320×480.) Here are 11 that I think look pretty good.
Frenzic August 12th, 2008 @ 8:48 pm PDT
Crap. There goes the rest of 2008. Take a look at Frenzic (iPhone version), “a fast-paced, addictive game that makes Tetris look like child’s play.”
Mile High Music Festival 2008 July 25th, 2008 @ 9:02 am PDT
Last weekend I hopped on a flight to Denver for my friend Bob’s 36th birthday party. His wife spent months planning “Bob’s Amazing Race 2008“; we spent Saturday as six teams of four people roaming around LoDo, barnstorming bars and looking for clues. It was a total blast. The event was conveniently simultaneous with the […]
iPhone 3G Bluetooth July 24th, 2008 @ 10:13 am PDT
It takes four actions to enable Bluetooth on the new iPhone. Click “Settings”. Click “General”. Click “Bluetooth”. Click on/off slider. Leaving Bluetooth enabled all the time drains the battery much too quickly, so it makes sense to only enable it when you are using it, and to disable it when you are finished. (The same […]
